I'm doing a talk at Portsoy Salmon Bothy 1st May and went up the other day to find out more about the place.
I was planning to do WWI as I've 12,7000+ on my database but on the flyer outside they had me down to do WWII as well.
I have details off CWGC of a few but had no details.
The details on the memorial are on the site so if you could find out anything regarding them I would like that very much.

There is nothing on them, as they were not casualties.

In it has him buried then later on in the war his body was removed and reburied in Amara War Cemetery, and his army number is on it as S/7730 died from wounds.

Glad you found him. Here is his entry from SDGW.

Name: John Stewart
Birth Place: Edinburgh

Death Location: Persian Gulf
Enlistment Location: Edinburgh
Rank: Private
Regiment: Black Watch (Royal Highlanders)
Battalion: 2nd Battalion
Number: S/7730

Unfortunately he is one of the many whose service record does not seem to have survived. You can find his entry in SNWM and SDGW.

If you have not already got his medal index card then send me a PM with your email address and I will send it on.
